The biannual (winter and summer) coDEsign festival focused on teaching computer programming and design is ideal for those who want to learn more about IT and gain some new insight and skills. The coDEsign festival is hosted by the ITS, LINK Group and Comtrade.
This unique IT festival is primarily but not exclusively meant for secondary school students. Anyone looking to master the basics of computer programming, design, online marketing and analytics, setting up and designing websites, making video games or just improve their IT skills and learn about current IT trends is more than welcome.
Experts in every field of IT
All of the coDEsign teachers are experts in their field. Teachers from the ITS, successful IT business professionals and representatives of leading IT companies will be sharing their knowledge and insight with students attending the winter and summer coDEsign programme.
The teachers and topics are never the same so each festival is unique and a special event. You will not regret attending several of them because you will learn something new every time.
Every day is a unique experience
Every festival day is unique. The mornings are usually filled with lectures meant for a wider audience and anyone interested can follow the events via live stream.
CoDEsign students can also attend interesting and useful workshops in which they get to apply and practice the things they have learned in the lectures.
The final part of the festival day usually includes an interesting trip, a visit to the ITS or the working environment within respected IT companies.
Infinite opportunities and possibilities
CoDEsign students can participate in various competitions and see how well they fare compared to their colleagues in things like code writing, game design and web design. Winners will receive great awards. In addition, students with creative start-up ideas will get the chance to make their ideas come true, along with instructions on how to do that.
Every coDEsign Festival ends with an official ceremony during which students who attended the design and programming lectures and workshops receive their certificates. Aside from being a certificate confirming your newly-acquired design and programming skills, this document also is a valuable addition to your CV.
Every coDEsign festival comes with a great number of opportunities and it opens up a lot of doors so use it in the best way you can.
